Your obsession with transit-oriented design has been answered with the newest map series by Blue Crow Media. The first in this series, London Underground Architecture and Design Map curates original content by transport design historian, Mark Ovenden paired with photography by Will Scott to depict the London Underground. Mark Ovenden is a specialist in graphic design, cartography, and architecture in public transport with an emphasis on underground rapid transit, making him the natural fit for the design of this map.

London Underground Architecture and Design Map highlights destinations across London’s underground network, from unusual signage, clocks, and murals, to the iconic Johnston font and the architecture of entire stations. Each mapped feature is then highlighted on the reverse side with photographs, facts and details, making for the perfect pocket guide while impressing (or exhausting; refer to numbers 11-12 in this list of 20 Things your Non-Architect Friends Think About You) your travel companions.

The map features stations designed by Norman Foster, Sir Richard MacCormac, and Michael Hopkins & Partners alongside Charles Holden, Leslie Green and Stanley Heaps. Not only the architecture and graphic design are noteworthy in the underground, murals such as those by Eduardo Paolozzi are also a sight not to miss.
